The panel discussion will explore the figure of Joseph/Yusef whose story is depicted in both the biblical book of Genesis and in the Qur’an. Apart from comparing the biblical and quar’anic versions of the Joseph story, the forum will also seek to draw out possible lessons of this ancient story for our own time and cultural context.
